MPP Yurek Hosts Local Roundtable with Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs

St. Thomas - On Monday, November 5, MPP Jeff Yurek hosted an agriculture roundtable with the Hon. Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs to discuss red-tape and regulatory burden on farmers in Elgin-Middlesex-London.

Farmers from a number of sectors came together to talk about strengthening Ontario's agriculture industry, by reducing red-tape that is getting in their way and ensuring Ontario is open for business.

"Our government for the people knows that costly red-tape and too many regulations are squeezing businesses in every sector, and driving jobs and investment out of Ontario," said Hardeman. "Reducing that burden is one of our government's key goals."

"I look forward to continuing today's productive discussion with farmers in the community and hearing about how the government can make life easier for them," said MPP Yurek. "We are fortunate to have a wide range of agricultural activity in the area and this event was a great way to showcase and support local farmers and farm families."
